Larouchies Now Considered ‘Democrat/Union Plants’

by Jim Newell

I'd hit all of itIt is well known in Republican circles that anyone comparing Barack Obama to former German senator Adolf Hitler is secretly a black Democrat ‘plant,’ in a union. This includes Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck, but only during those times that they are saying Barack Obama loves Hitler and vice versa. How much does Barack Obama’s union, “Organizing for America,” pay these fat slobs to say or “imply” these things in public, to make anti-health care people “come across” as insane? No one knows. (Five blowjobs.) But today we learned, on the Internet, that Obama’s fraudulent plant-reach extends even further, to the mainstream Democrats known as “LaRouchies,” who comprise a solid 87 percent of the American left.

Some dick in Michigan broke a major story this morning on his blog about how the dudes carrying this massive Obama/Hitler “I’ve Changed” poster to a recent, turbulent Rep. John Dingell town hall were Democratic union operatives — DINGELLPLANTS — secretly trying to embarrass the wingnuts. The dick writes:

Note the black man holding up the poster. This screenshot was used in reports by the MSM who painted the protesters as Nazis. Here’s the thing, though – that black man is a Dingell supporter!


As usual, known hell-monster of veracity Dave Weigel debunked this immediately:

The truth is a little murkier than that. The man was a supporter of fringe Democratic activist Lyndon LaRouche, whose LaRouchePAC has been running with the “Obama=Hitler” theme for a few months now. That “I’ve Changed” poster seen at the rally can be downloaded as a PDF from LaRouche’s Website. [...]

What’s this mean? It’s really not good for conservative opponents of Democratic health care reform plans when their fellow activists are pictured with signs comparing the president to Hitler or accused of painting swastikas on congressional offices. The solution: Blame these incidents on “plants” or call them hoaxes. If they want to know how hard this will be, though, they should ask the anti-Iraq War protesters who watched coverage of their events focus on the craziest, fringiest people there. The LaRouche cultists are not “plants.” They want, sadly, to be allies.

The Weekly Standard‘s “John McCormack” wrote a post about Weigel’s post about the Michigan dick’s post (ha ha, BLOGGING), and kind of missed Weigel’s point completely:

Now, Dave Weigel points out that the Obama-as-Hitler posters are produced by the group of many-times Democratic presidential candidate (and absolute nutter) Lyndon LaRouche.

McCormack doesn’t seem to understand that this “absolute nutter” and his followers are now more closely aligned with the Republican fringe, which is now the entire Republican party, which now somehow finds itself three farts down the ideological y-axis on the one-dimensional left/right political spectrum.

Democratic Presidential Candidate Lyndon LaRouche? Ah yes, who can forget the many times that LaRouche has run on the Democratic ticket. There was the great LaRouche-Reagan race in 1984, and LaRouche-Bush in 1992. Then LaRouche was Democratic President of America, from 1992-2000 of course.

Found some shiny new LaRouche “literature” laying discarded on a metro train a few days ago. One pamphlet was all about how we are controlled by evil British people, and this is a bad thing. The title was something about destroying Britain in Latin. (I am told that in LaRouche uses “British” as a clever euphemism for “Jewish” or something.) The other pamphlet was all about “Obama’s Nazi Fascist Healthcare” and Obama’s army of Nazi doctors. It contained some very real photos of Obama fraternizing with that Hitler fellow, a man who Larouche apparently has a deep love/hate relationship with.

Advocatus_Diaboli August 12, 2009 at 8:13 pm

The fact that right wing fucktards would call them “plants” is so fucking hilarious. If only the left wing had that much organizational skillz! It is to laugh. Fuck, liberals can’t organize a coffee break without 9/11 truthers and various other idiots showing up to ruin the day.

DustBowlBlues August 12, 2009 at 9:04 pm

Okay, let me see if I can work this out. LaRouche was a scary nutter from the 70s who had people handing out shit at airports and believed the tripartite commission of the Queen of England, Baron deRothschild and ? were ruling the world and–providing drugs to the ghetto, or something, right? But he was always weird and kind of right wing. Oh, and secret tanks and helicopters, right?

Then he vanished from sight, because no one was paying attention and now he’s been resurrected by–himself, or O’bama, for the purpose of making the righties look crazy, because Sean O’Rushbeck, Bachman, Palin, Grassley, et al isn’t doing a superlative job on their own. Gladney, also.

Have I got this right? This is so confusing. Does this mean the wingers realize they’re so crazy they’re alienating normal people?

All I can think is that Joe the Not a Plumber is so totally jealous of the attention We’re-all-Gladney is getting that he and Bible Spice are about to team up for a concert tour with that Ted Dickgun, whatever that guy is named.

Beam me up, Scotty? Anyone?

[re=384837]dougbob[/re]: A LaRouchie came to speak to the Seattle Chapter of NOW in 1975. I was still drinking then, but even I remembered that the NOW members gave them a cold shoulder because they were complete wackos. And annoying at airports.

hobospacejunkie August 12, 2009 at 9:35 pm

[re=384937]DustBowlBlues[/re]: At least part of the reason LaRouche seemed to disappear is he spent a few years in prison.

Extemporanus August 12, 2009 at 10:30 pm

I just had an [assumedly unoriginal?] idea on how one might go about subtly subverting the Hitler-ized Obama iconography.

In a word: bowlers.

Embrace the mini-moustachioed Obama image. Desecrate it with a Chaplin-esque bowler. Print it out. Make signs. Hoist them proudly at rallies alongside protesting LaRouchies, wingnuts, Paletards, et al.

From Wikipedia:

“The Tramp, as portrayed by Chaplin, is a bumbling but usually good-hearted character who is most famously presented as a vagrant who endeavors to behave with the manners and dignity of a gentleman despite his actual social status. However, while he is ready to take what paying work that is available, he also uses his cunning to get what he needs to survive and escape the authority figures who will not tolerate his antics.”

Admittedly, it’s not the most ideal character one might choose to associate with our 44th president. And yet, it’s also not too far off the mark, and a fair sight better than der Führer. Because really, in these modern times, who doesn’t love “The Tramp”?

A few well-placed “Buster Keaton” Biden signs could serve to further deflate the hate, though rounding out the politicomedic triumphant with a “Fatty Arbuckle” Clinton homage would probably be ill-advised.

[re=384935]DustBowlBlues[/re]: LaRouche was pretty active in the ’80s, too. He’s basically the equivalent of a megachurch evangelist, except that instead of talking about Jesus all the time, he talks about Plato all the time. He seemed to get a lot of silly academics. I knew two philosophy profs and a voice instructor (opera) who were devoted followers.

L. gets loads of money from his followers. Not tithes, but “donations” to fund lectures on Plato (of course) or Beethoven or something cultural sounding. He lives like a mob boss, very comfortably, but with no visible means of support.

Somehow everyone is a Platonist (good guy) or Aristotelian (bad guy). All human history is a conspiracy, but by the Zoroastrian Magi, not the usual conspiracoid suspects. Why anyone would believe is beyond me, but I guess you can get a PhD in philosophy and still have no idea how to turds from tootsie rolls without eating them.

Whether L. really believes in all his crapola or if it’s all a big con, is hard to say. Maybe both.

Y’know, whether you like LaRouche or not, the guy has a spot on research team and you’d be amazed at the number of folks in D.C. (most of ‘em Dems btw) who follow his stuff religiously for that reason. He’s been posting that Obama as Hitler pic for awhile now and I’m glad! I’m a passionate liberal. But the truth is the truth. Obama’s healthcare reform has zero to do with improving access and quality and everything to do with healthcare rationing. The people who ruined the British NHS with the NICE board are the architects of the Obama plan. It saves money for sure. But it has also driven up the death rate in the UK. Soooooo, if you don’t like the LaRouchies for whatever reason, I say tuff shitski. When you’re right, you’re right.
